Basehor chamber thanks area businesses
The Basehor Chamber of commerce held its annual Business Appreciation dinner June 20 at the First State Bank community room.
Basehor Mayor John Pfannenstiel welcomed the 37 chamber members and special guests.
He said the city encourages growth and future development with the completion of a new wastewater treatment facility early in 2001.
The guest speaker for the evening was John Watson, associate director of trade development with the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing.
He discussed the efforts made at the state level to help Kansas businesses export goods and services. Total Kansas exports to international markets exceeded $4.8 billion in 1999.

Nichols/Cross Creek Realty and Steven Rosenthal; Suburban Water and Ray Breuer; and Basehor-Linwood School District and superintendent David Pendelton.
